5. The force is applied only in the x direction, and the axial displacement u is only a function of x. Therefore, the axial displacement u in a truss member is governed by the following equilibrium equations. 66) b( b( x ) 0 where E is the Young’s modulus, A is the cross-section area, and b(x ( ) is a distributed external axial force applied along the truss member. We assume that the solution is constrained by the essential (displacement) boundary conditions. 67) where L is the length of the truss member.

E. 0 . 94) It can be seen that the coefficient matrix obtained using the Galerkin method is symmetric. 9 for easy comparison. 7 plot the weight functions and the results of displacements obtained using the analytical solution and the oneterm approximate solution, respectively. 9 plot the weight functions and the curves obtained using the analytical solution and the two-term approximate solutions, respectively. These table and figures show that the accuracy of the approximated results is different for different approximation methods and for different terms used in the approximate solutions.

Some of the early MFree methods were the vortex method (Chorin, 1973; Bernard, 1995), finite difference method (FDM) with arbitrary grids, orr the general FDM (GFDM) (Girault, 1974; Pavlin and Perrone, 1975; Snell ett al, 1981; Liszka and Orkisz, 1977; 1980; Krok and Orkisz, 1989). Another well-known MFree method is the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) that was initially used for modelling astrophysical phenomena such as exploding stars and dust clouds that had no boundaries. Most of the earlier research work on SPH is reflected in the publications of Lucy (1977), and Monaghan and his coworkers (Gingold and Monaghan, 1977; Monaghan and Lattanzio, 1985; Monaghan, 1992).
